The Writer's Voice Twitter Pitch





The Writer's Voice Twitter Pitch
(Twitter hashtag: #WVTP)

You know how much we  love you? Well, we have the amazingly sexy, talented agent, John M. Cusick of Scott Treimel NY , and the beautiful, and equally talented, agent, Vickie Motter of Andrea Hurst Literary Management, throwing a twitter pitch party on the hashtag #WVTP on May 24 from 12PM until 6PM EDT. Yeah. We love you that much!

Here's the rules...

Pitch your finished manuscript on the hashtag. Make sure your pitch includes the hashtag #WVTP. The agents will be hopping in and out of the feed during the party hours. John and Vickie will tweet their requests for the manuscripts that pique their interests. Simple. Right? Not if they both make a request on the same pitch, it isn't. 

Keeping in the spirit of The Writer's Voice, if they both request the same pitch, you must choose one of them and announce it in the feed. (They promised not to hold any rejections against you.) 

And, one more thing, we may have other agents joining in the twitter pitch frenzy. 

So get your Twitter pitches ready, and make sure to include the hashtag. 

And follow the agents on Twitter...

  3. This is so, so cool, Moni! Your blog should be the #1 destination for all things agent-related, in my opinion. :)

  7. Does the MSS need to be in a genre that the agents represent? And can you tweet more than one MSS?

  8. Yes, they need to be in the genre they represent, but this is only if you want Vickie or John to request. (You can go to their websites and see what they are looking for.) BUT looks like other agents are going to be reading the twitter feed, so you can post other genres too. Only 1 ms. :)
